Tailgate Heros: Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots

Tailgate Heros: Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots
Be forewarned. If you make these,they will disappear quickly! But that's okay. Tailgating is all about sharing food and good times, right? Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots Makes 4 appetizer servings 16 frozen tater tots 8 slices THIN bacon, cut in half sideways 2 Tbsp turbinado sugar 1 tsp season salt ¼ tsp cayenne pepper Mix the sugar, salt and cayenne pepper together thoroughly. Sprinkle about half of the rub on top of the bacon strips. Top each half strip with 1 tot and roll up. Place seam side down on a raised rack or a tray. Sprinkle the rest of the seasoning mix over the assembled tots. Preheat your oven or grill to 450f. Cook the bacon snuggled tots until the bacon turns crispy, about 20 minutes. Don't be alarmed if the bacon goes “boa constrictor” on a few of your tots and squeezes the heck out of them. Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce, spicy ketchup, or other dipping sauce. These also go great with a grilled steak burger. Perfect for tailgating or “just because”.

When I stumbled onto a recipe from the Noble Pig, I knew I had to try it out on my family!

Beechers "Worlds Best" Mac &Cheese - StumbleUpon We came up with this recipe when we opened Beecher's. We wanted to show our customers that you can cook with and eat great cheese every day, and this killer mac and cheese uses two of our cheeses with a background hint of garlic powder and chipotle pepper. We've already won the vote for Seattle's best Mac and Cheese, but the tens of thousands of people a year from all over the world who eat it in our store tell us it's the world's Best. serves 4 as a side dish The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls. Last week was a bit of a zoo and I think I forgot about prepping this dessert until Friday afternoon at work.

I tend to cook healthy dishes most of the time, but decided to go all in on this one and it was so worth it! I was in the mood for some comfort food this week, and my cute little French Onion Soup bowls were begging to be used again, so I dreamed up this French Onion Mac & Cheese!
